The car that makes you wanna go “Come a-ti yi youpy, youpy yea yee hee!” It’s a great car in my opinion because, not only is it cheap but it has enough power and performance and even cargo capacity of the average Pinoy.   Of course, you have to remember that the Yaris and the Echo are the same car, except that their sold in different markets.   Here in the Philippines, it takes it’s role as a younger sister of the Vios; they sort of share many…

Smart Fortwo. Just for you.

This is a great car in my opinion. Small. Tiny. Minute. Diminutive. It’s what we need here in the Philippines. It’s just a shame that Filipinos are trying to copy the U.S. of A, the land of the SUV even though, the Philippines is like one-one- hundredth the size of the US.   Photo credit to: https://www.smart.com   However, this car hasn’t really caught on in the Philippines. Despite it’s diminutive looks and practicality for single peop…

Velocé Veloster

It’s not that bad, actually. Considering its cost and exterior design, it seems like a good deal. I mean, the PHP 1.6 Million price tag is enough to give you a 1.6L engine that produces anywhere between 128-201 horsepower and 116-195 lbs-ft of torque. All this with a DCT gearbox propels it from 0-60 in 7.2 seconds and on to 134 miles an hour.   It isn’t going to beat any records but what’s the point? When you have taxis, jeepneys and even police vehicle…

Arguably one of the best off-road vehicles you can buy today, Toyota has secured itself with one of the world’s go-to vehicles on the market for mudding and armored transport.   When it came out in 1951, everyone was in awe. Big, bad and bold; it was something new in the market. Fast forward to 2018 and you’re looking at the world’s best SUV.   The model in question was designed in 2007 and given several minor facelifts. In the Philippines, it’s u…

When it came to the Philippines in 2005, it somewhat took everyone by surprise. No, really. For the first time ever in the Philippines, a mid-sized SUV could be had from Toyota without having to go for the diminutive RAV4 or the ultra expensive Land Cruiser. At one point, it was even the best seller in the mid-size SUV category.   Photo credit to: http://www.toyota.com.ph   Originally available with 5 engines, the Philippines only getting 3 of the 5, there was one…

Vulgar Vios

Well, no, actually. I was just trying to grab your attention with the title. The Toyota Vios is not vulgar and is a very common car here in the Philippines and rightly so. The most basic, down-to- earth, practical model is only PHP 617,000 and goes all the way up to PHP 1,024,000. Pinoy prices for the Pinoy people.   Because of its cheap base price, it is also equally a very common car amongst taxi companies. Be it the old or new models, they’re out there running a…

Posted on 2017-10-25


From the term “secondhand cars”, we have added “pre-owned” and “pre-loved” in our vocabulary. However we call a used car, the reasons for buying one may still stand before time. Perhaps you believe that money is more wisely invested in a business; or that you have enough money to buy outright a used car; or you prefer not to extend paying several years for a brand new car’s ammortization; or you have really wanted a specific mode…
